Mason's Championship Jiujitsu Match

 This was Mason's final match yesterday!!

Mason's First Jiu Jitsu Tournament!

Mason participated in his first real tournament on Saturday and it was amazing.  I had no idea what the rules were or what to expect and I was very pleasantly surprised.  Mason had 6 matches and won them all. It was so intense and exciting.  

 First match- there was a big crowd watching.  I thought Mason might get scared but he went for it.  This was Tiger division and each kid had a coach in their corner helping them.

 Scoring 4points on a hold.

Getting awarded first place medal!

 While the older kids were fighting I took Ko and Mason next door to Trader Joes for a few treats.

Paris and her Girls on the Run Team.  She is training again to run another 5K in May.

Spring Break Part 1

On our way up to the Palm Springs Aerial Tram that took us 8,500 feet up to the top of the mountain. The tram was all windows, with a revolving floor.  Very beautiful and scary! It was 80 degrees down here.
At the top- 38 degrees.

We stayed up top and hiked and played in the snow for a couple of hours.
Back down in the desert. Paul, Paris and I rode up front and Mason and Alex sat where the golf clubs would have gone:)
